I never noticed the Jurassic Park theme before so thanks for pointing that out but please people don't turn this into a thread about how disfunctional SeaWorld is.

Also I heard that only 2% of the worlds oceans have been explored.

Also I heard that only 2% of the worlds oceans have been explored.
And I heard that 70% remains unstudied.

I've heard several other numbers, which has led me to believe Professor Wright on his remark: "42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot. "

I don't know what the actual number is, but I'm sure it's affected by area.
Some spots are better studied or more reachable than others.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

Very true, I believe that one day atleast 90% of the ocean will be explored and studied but advancement's in technology will be needed before this can happen.

Oh no, Not the old 'conspiracy cover-up' again. Jaysus. It's not a 'sea monster' by any means, I don't see why it can't be just a manatee.


Looked just like a seal to me.

Manatess can do, but there are no seals in Florida.

I have a feeling this thread will soon die, I wish there was a way to spice it up a little but everyone is convinced it is a manatee. :hmm:
